We are probably biased, but we believe that this is what the Sierra Nevada has in spades; long tours in the Sierra with warm days, perfect corn snow, spectacular scenery and no crowds. We are stunned that people flock from California to Europe to ski, ignoring the best spring skiing in the world in their backyard.
These trips do take a certain skill level and we suggest that those starting out start with our Introduction to Touring Skills. Before undertaking one of the advanced tours you need to have done one of the easier ones.
You need to carry a multi-day pack and be comfortable on skis so these tours are not for everyone. But if you are prepared these are the best tours you will find anywhere. Learn more about our ski tours here.
As well as our regular scheduled trips we offer the option of a custom trip with private guiding. Sierra Mountain Center leads expeditions in Alaska, the Arctic, Canada, Europe, and Patagonia as well! If you'd like to do something a little different, please get in touch!
